often sounds like contemporary classical viewed through an extreme metal lens, and the result is pretty exciting stuff.

a hypnotic piece of moody post-rock, balancing vibraphone pulses with urgent drumming and some dusty strands of noir guitar and strings. It’s stunning.

Nous is an experimental music project with a fluctuating group of artists exploring ritual and spontaneity within music. NOUS II features the same lineup as the debut: multi-instrumentalists Christopher Bono (keyboards/electronics/percussion/vocals), Greg Fox (drums/percussion electronics, Thor Harris (drums/percussion), Shahzad Ismaily(electronics/guitar/bass) and Grey Mcmurray (guitar), with special guests.
Each recording, and performance will center around a different focal concept, always seeking alternative ways of creating art. The name Nous was chosen for its double meaning. 'Nous' in the French language is the plural personal pronoun in the first person, meaning 'we' or 'us'. However, within the philosophical tradition it is a word, sometimes equated to intellect or intelligence, used to describe the faculty of the human mind which is described in classical philosophy as necessary for understanding what is true or real, similar in meaning to intuition.
